    Vital Statistics at Time of Disappearance
    Missing Since: July 1, 1981 from Clearwater, Washington
    Classification: Endangered Missing
    Date of Birth: February 19, 1967
    Age: 14 years old
    Height and Weight: 5'4, 110 pounds
    Distinguishing Characteristics: Caucasian female. Brown hair, hazel eyes.
    Clothing/Jewelry Description: A light blue zip-up sweatshirt, blue jeans and thong sandals with dark blue velvet straps.

    Details of Disappearance
    Carla last seen in Clearwater, Washington on July 1, 1981. That night, she left her family's home to babysit an infant at a house ten miles away. When the baby's mother returned home that evening, Carla was gone and the baby was home alone. A broken, blood-spattered Galliano liquor bottle was on the floor. Carla has never been heard from again. The blood at the house matched her type, but DNA testing was not available in 1981 and so the stains were not definitively linked to her.

    Authorities have a suspect in the case, a transient logger named Ken Barry. Bloodstains and broken glass from a Galliano bottle were found in his pickup truck. Barry died suddenly of a heart attack in 1986 or 1987. He was never charged in Carla's case. Her disappearance remains unsolved.

    Do you remember Carla Owens? Girl disappeared 35 years ago from West End

    It may be a long shot, but that's often the only hope when investigating a "cold case" of a person's disappearance.

    The Jefferson County Sheriff's Office Cold Case Squad, with support from the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children, has produced an artist's age-progression image of a 14-year-old girl who went missing 35 years ago this summer in Jefferson County's West End.

    Foul play is suspected. No trace of the girl, Carla Owens, has been found.

    "It would, frankly, just be a miracle if we ever found her," said Bob Gebo, who supervisors the cold case squad. "Our thought is not that she is living and has a life somewhere else. Our hope is that somebody who maybe didn't get talked to by police back then, or heard or saw or never has spoken up about it, might see this poster and come forward."

    Wondering out loud.

    The digs mentioned in this article took place in 2007.

    10 years later, and with the advancements in DNA testing technology, could LE revisit their evidence?

    Blood found on glass at the home young Carla disappeared from?
    Blood found on glass in the pickup truck?

    Did LE ever try utilizing trained dogs in the area they were digging in?

    So sad. One more child that needs to be returned home. IMHO

    We are here to help. I will do my best to not cause any hindrance, in any manner.
